it’s london, baby!

Almost anyway. Bristol, actually.

We’ve bought our tickets to my cousin’s wedding in England in mid-September. I’ve come up with an idea for a wedding present. Haven’t bought it yet, mind you, but I’m feeling better about things than I was a week ago.

I will rent a cell phone while I’m there this time. No point in repeating the problem of our first trip when we managed to miss meeting up with Erik for dinner. I’d hate to miss Caroline’s wedding simply because I’d gotten lost or something stupid like that.

Should I buy a new guidebook? Ours are 4-5 years old. Should we fly to Austria or Germany or take a train to Paris for a day? Take the ferry to Ireland? Everything is possible right now. It’s almost the best part of the trip. I love this part of things — so much potential.

Forbes Magazine has posted their Best of the Web blog listings. Under their City Blogs category, DC Blogs gets a nod.

KOB works hard to keep his finger on top of what’s going on in blogs across the city, in the ‘burbs, and from travelers to the area. He highlights posts he thinks are particularly interesting or well-written or that form the bridges that unite us.

But most of all, he keeps our blogs — and us — from existing in a vacuum. While I could read all the local blogs every day, I don’t. But I know if there’s something I should read, KOB will find it and point me over to share in someone else’s life.

So, thanks, KOB, and congratulations. You deserve the accolades.
